No such luck nikos. I downloaded the .rar file, extracted the iso and mounted on VirtualBox as I have done many times with Aspire Os and other OS. It won't boot. Skipping the media and the CD/DVD player.
Amigamia: That looks right. AspireOS 2,1 is only for real hardware like this laptop.
Hmm that's interesting. Not even the grub starts? I mean I understand it is for specific laptops but I thought the boot into grub was agnostic of the device. The thing is, it wouldn't boot on the Dell D520 either.
I guess I'll be patient and wait for the USB stick :-)
Why not have some fun for cheap money. For 5 - 10 euro it is easy to find Intel T2400 core2duo cpu on eBay. This is the most powerful CPU used in this laptop. I will try to change it on one of my D520s that got t2300. It should be easy. I bring you the result when I have changed it.
I installed T2400 today. Works great. I will put up some pictures and a video about it.
I'm pretty sure I'm wrong about T2400 is the most powerfull CPU for this laptop. I will buy a T7200. That one should be the fastest CPU for this laptop :) It is sweet that the CPU on this laptop is not soldered.
nikos! Got my USB stick today. Thank you so very much. I was able to install it after a few attempts to do it the right way. Now I am just waiting for the wireless card so I can download all other software etc.
Tried Quake shortly and it is blazing fast!! Going to have to add some extra software though. What is in the top 10 for AROS? OWB? Janus-UAE? Oh I also noticed there were games in AspireOS 2.0 that are not part of 2.1. Was that intentional?

I have installed Icaros latest stable version on a virtualbox hosted on windows
I do want to install this on a physical workstation, but want to play around first to see how it works
